from Mark Moore of the Toronto Star,
Some people think violence occurs because hockey is an intense emotional game, but now is the time when the inaccuracy of such explanations is most clear.
At playoff time, games are all-important, team discipline is absolute and acting out frustration against the interests of the team is simply not tolerated. The violence we see, therefore, is largely a deliberate tactic.
